Our old game “Doodle Tower” has been removed from the marketplace because of the similarity of its name to the name of another app, but we did not give up and started working on a successor. We were very careful in the development process to avoid any further inconveniences and are proud to finally be able to present you our new game Birdy Bounce for Windows Phone 7. The game is available for FREE, we want that everyone who previously downloaded our old game can upgrade for free. However, it will not stay for free forever, so better hurry!
In Birdy Bounce, you are steering a young bird on its way up to the horizon by using the accurate tilt controls of your Windows Phone 7 device. Be warned, the way is dangerous and many birds before you fell to their death. Only the fittest will survive this dangerous travel – how far can you get?
The gameplay experience provides a vast amount of different platform types you can use to jump higher and higher. There will be breakable, moving or thorny platforms and even some that give you a turbo boost and some that vanish before your eyes when you aren’t fast enough.
You can find more information in the game thread.

Yes, I'm talking about HTC, the...
